William Wylam P-47D Drawing

William Wylam P-47D Drawing

The date on Wylam’s art for the P-47D Thunder-bolt is December 1944. At the time, Air Age Publish-ing was 15 years old. Model Airplane News was a relative upstart and Wylam was producing his fantastic art for us. That makes FJ’s sister magazine and our parent company 83 years old—one of the oldest family-owned publishing companies in history! Download it here.

  1. I’ve collected these since being a subscriber to Model Airplane News in the 50’s. Dad and I built (mostly Dad) a flying model (.049 powered, U-control) of the Nieuport 28 C 1 The model suffered terminal damage from a wind gust on a day in the mid 80’s, the plans were lost in Hurricane Betsy (1965), but I digress.
    I like the drawings.
